Rafael Hi Rich,
In date 04/27/17 my kindle book on Amazon will be FREE. It would be great if you could read my book in exchange for your honest review. I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi Faith, I owe you a sincere apology. I need to check comments more often. I'm doing great. My book is getting awesome reviews.
I simply need to pay more attention to what's going on.
Thanks so much for stopping by,

Bridget Bowers Thanks for the friend request, Rich!

Rich Weatherly I'm well. Meant to ask if you felt tremors from the earthquake in Turkey. Didn't hear any stories about tsunami's. Suppose it was far enough inland to spare you that.

I owe you some reviews. I need to catch up and Amazon has lost some of the ones I've written. Couldn't find Children of the Plantation and thought I'd written one on The Crossing.

Take Care,
